Velocipedia: The role of the designer.
The data gathered by this artist showcases the role of the designer. The task was for random individuals to simply draw a bicycle. These were laymen, friends and random strangers without technical knowledge, but an understanding of the goal. In these rudimentary sketches, full of errors and possibility, the designer finds elegance. He confirms his thesis:
everyone, regardless his age and job, can come up with extraordinary, wild, new and at times brilliant inventions.
The role of the designer is to recognize the possibilities and develop them; it is not to correct errors. Listen to your client, community, or muse - they will likely surprise you with their potential to contribute to "your" design.
SMPTE color bars!
Blurred lines and spatial relationships in a design conceived of as an inhabitable painting in the shape of a house... The success of work like this is the explosion of possibility in the viewer's mind's eye. You can see in it for yourself and make your own reality, like it's 3a.m. and the only thing on TV is the test pattern and you're all right with that, because you're dreaming.
